the police commission ray kelly has been speaking to the media saying don't worry about it. they started battening down the hatches here earlier in the week. 3:00 today they closed traffic off. 6:00 everything was putt on lockdown. anybody who wants to come out here has to be put in a pen. once you're inside of that pen, you can't leave. if you have to go out and go to the bathroom, you have to go through security again and be put in another pen. so no alcohol, no backpacks, no nothing. especially, john and kyra, no shenanigans. there are bomb-sniffing dogs out here, counterterrorism, plain clothed officers. they won't say how many but a robust presence of new york city police officers and others out here watching all of this. but it's a beautiful night. 32 degrees. john, you're not here. kyra, you're not here. it was snowing earlier today, so you got to miss that lovely snow which is now slush on the streets of new york. back to you. it will be a fun time, though, but they're hoping everybody will be safe and nothing will happen here tonight. we hope so.
